@WorldProfessor @UrbanHistoryA @thecrisismag @Georgetown @C19Americanists John Lowe’s Calypso Magnolia looks at Southern literature through a circumcarribean lens, exploring the ways that white Southerners wanted to expand slavery and Black writers like Martin Delaney’s countering of those attempts uncpress.org/book/978146962…

[Day4: Strengths & Limits of #SciComm forms, media, & spaces]
It's theory vs practice day!

There are loads of resources out there for #BestPractices. Today, let's discuss the strengths & limitations YOU've found in trying #STEM #storytelling, #comedy, #SciArt, #digital, & more!
I'll start w/ my favorite resources: @edbeltane & @OliverEscobar's "Public Dialogue & Delibration" & #WendyFaulkner's "Dialogue in #PublicEngagement" handbooks.

How do participant #communication styles impede/help your purpose, eg. #dialogue vs #debate?

These have been crucial in my understanding of #experiencedesign when creating events or experiences for diverse #scicomm audiences & participants.

There's a purpose for panels and debates. But also a reason why they fail in "changing minds" or creating power-balanced convos.

So I'm going to post some links.... All purchases go to supporting initiatives I am a part of/helping to lead. Recently had somebody reach out asking for my Venmo to compensate me for all they learn from me on Twitter. I appreciate that. Here are additional ways...[THREAD]
#Educolor is my heart home. It is where familia, intense dreaming, and powerful activism centered around educational equity starts and ends for me.
#DisruptTexts is a little thing we have going on recognized by @NYTimesLearning and @chicagotribune so let's keep disrupting the literary canon and all THAT.

Day 1 of summer school down. We’re reading Wilson’s FENCES. Our first paired text was Morrison's “Recitatif.” Tomorrow, it’s the “Bona and Paul” Excerpt from Jean Toomer’s CANE. #pairedtexts #engchat #litchat
Day 2 included a close reading of “Bona and Paul,” followed by theme statements for the story, and a gender-flipped reading of Act One Scene One of FENCES. Two girls read the parts of Troy and Bono and there was much engagement and laughter.
Preliminary Notes from Day 3:

Student to me: Did you pick FENCES or did they tell you to teach it?
Me: No, I picked it. I love teaching it.
Him: You picked a good one.

HIGHEST PRAISE ALWAYS COMES FROM THE KIDS.
